Things just keep getting better.
Good hire and now we will have to pray that if Zimmer gets fired, Norv does not get hired to become the Vikings head coach
Looking forward to a solid draft and adding a couple pieces via free agency and I'm back to being excited about VIkings football! This coaching staff should definitely be geared to bring excitement and hopefully some innovation!
Welcome to Minny Norv. Good hire.
I am feeling more optimistic then ever, We have something to look forward to.
This is a giant upgrade from last year.
Who get the credit Spilman or Wilf ??
I am so excited for Zimmer and Norv! I think that they will have a huge impact on our teams performance. Huge Upgrade! SKOL!
From what I have heard and read, Spielman was the primary player in the coach search. A couple of weeks ago Spielman basically put the blame on the Wilfs for hiring Frazier, stating very specifically that he was not the GM at the time. http://espn.go.com/blog/minnesota-vi...p-hired-leslie
Spielman was pretty vocal about NOT rushing through the coaching search like the last two hires that the ownership has made, and pretty vocal about the search belonging to him, and only needing to consult with the Wilfs.
But then again, I am a Spielman fan, so I am sure others will disagree. ;)Quote:
"I know that I am the general manager and that the owners put their trust in me to lead this search for our next head coach," Spielman said. "So my responsibility is to go out there and do that and consult with them as we go along the way. All I'm worried about right now is putting the best team on the field. But the first and most important thing is getting this coaching staff filled out."
